Country Report: Review of the implementation of EU-FAS policy in Member States of EU- Italy, by Ekaterina Kleshcheva and Cristina Micheloni (VINIDEA)
This report presents the outcomes of an evaluation of EU-Farm Advisory System (EU-FAS) in Italy. The aim is to assess whether and how the EU-FAS regulation changed the functioning of Italian regimes of farm advisory services. The assessment follows the framework developed by Agrilink project to analyse the effects of the EU-FAS on the different dimensions of national advisory regimes, including the boundaries of the system, the identities of advisory suppliers, the attributes of the services (in both front-office and back-office), but also the financing and monitoring of advice.
